NPR re-broadcast a fascinating interview with the author and illustrator of my favorite children's book, Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak. Sendak's work was also the inspiration for what some call "the finest children's album ever made", Really Rosie (you wouldn't get much of an argument from me...it's great stuff.)
The interview discusses his work on the book Brundibar, based on an opera written and performed by children in the Czech concentration camp, Terezin. It's a great book and a really interesting interview...worth a listen.
P.S. to PatJack...looking at the early editions of Where the Wild Things Are above reminds me of some of the early editions of Potato Pals. May the Pals enjoy such longevity!
